Benton Toups led the “A Whole New World – Predicting Employment Claims in the Wake of COVID-19” webinar on Aug. 19. It was produced by the North Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association and Cranfill Sumner & Hartzog LLP.

The webinar discussed recent legislation passed by the NC General Assembly limiting liability for businesses, what we’ve seen so far and what we can expect to see moving forward with regard to epidemic-related claims specifically for the restaurant and hospitality industry.

Benton is the Chair of the Employment Law Practice Group at Cranfill Sumner. He is based in the firm’s Wilmington office.
